It looks like to me, the damage is done. It could be worse. Imagine them sticking out of the pore. Imagine them not being black (aka more visible), then it would come off as really disgusting right? no.. yes.. well, the answer is you are a dramatic teenager, your eight-teen, that is not disgusting. If that's disgusting, then clogges pores, pimples, pustules, bump scars, pit scars, redmarks and dry flaky skin are about.. 5-10 times more disgusting.
# 1: adjust your perception right away, no one can see those tiny deep blackheads unless they shine a light less than 2 feet from your face. The people that do notice them will take 1 whole second to look past it because, bingo, its not disgusting.
#2. There is absolutely nothing you can try topically that will make your blackheads go away for good, you cannot reduce their number, you can clear out the pore maybe. In fact the better you get at clearing out your pores, the worse they will get, they will come back faster, more of them may come back and the pores may appear to increase in size or stretch to their expanded form.
#3 just cover them up like.. hollywood stars, wear some makeup, do it well, and people won't know.
#2.5. eat a balanced diet, and avoid things that threw your diet off balance.
#4 I typed this all super fast, test yourself out of teenager-ness and believe in what you have to to make your skin better given our time's resources and don't believe what people say, especially not me. Confused? good. Paula's choice, mandelic acid, glycolic acid, green cream, linoleic acid, none of them work, but feel free to understand why some claim they do work. Insanity.
